washington, jefferson and adams himself. so i do think he has been underappreciated, and it's been really so much fun. i know five years of labor doesn't sound like fun, but discovering things, being able to put it into a form i hope would reach a wide audience. as the book is called, reconsidering james madison's life. >> which was the most important contribution? contributions were enormous, but if you had to pick just one, what would it be? >> it would have to be the constitution. i think he was a genius, and the reason is he was the kind of genius he had is he was able to break through conventional thinking. when everybody else was thinking one way, madison did necessary except. he would think of other possibilities. and he did that in the case of the constitution, in the case of establishing a great republic, which is what we are. the conventional wisdom was that you couldn't have a great republic, a republic where people voted for representatives, representative gohmert, that it would be too loose over a long and vast extent of land. and it would fall apart unless you had monarchical p

instead of regular. [laughter] now that it is 2014, washington is obsessed on the midterms. folks are saying that with my sagging poll numbers, my fellow democrats don't want me campaigning with him. and i do not think that is true although i did notice the other day sasha needed us be correct career day and she invited bill clinton. for career speaker day and she invited bill clinton. i was a little hurt by that. sides are doing whatever it takes to win. republicanses, and -- this is a true story -- republicans brought in a group of consultants to teach their candidates how to speak to women. this is true. and i don't know but i understand that america's teenage boys are signing up to run for the senate in droves. a while you focus on the horse race, i am going to do what i do i am going to focus on everyday americans. just yesterday i read a heartbreaking letter. i get letters from folks around the country every day and i read. this one got to me. one person has been stuck in the same part-time job for years, no respect from his boss, and a chance to get ahead. i really wish eri

messages, maybe some political insight on 2016 from president obama on washington's big night of the year, the white house correspondents' dinner. a night for the president to poke fun at the press and himself. >> what a year, huh? i usually start these dinners with a few self-deprecating jokes. after my stellar 2013, what could i possibly talk about? >> we'll have some political talk and comic review this morning and a surprise guest will join our round table. grammy award winner, innovator and social activist will be here. plus, the conversation continues about racism and sports after the controversy surrounding donald sterling, i'll speak exclusively with a former nba call star who played a big role in the punishment, sacramento mayor kevin johnson. >>> and the president has ordered a review of the death penalty. rick perry, governor of texas, the state that executes the most prisoners, will be here. i'll go one-on-one with him this morning. >>> from nbc news in washington, the world's longest running television program, this is "meet the press" with david gregory. >>> and go

by the president today, ronan, is the fact that this is not a story that's exclusive to washington, like a lot of political fights sometimes are. this is a story that's getting headlines in local communities right now, in newspapers and local newscasts across the country, with the veterans affairs inspector general investigating 26 separate va facilities right now. this is happening in, i think at least ten states. they recognize that drum beat is something they need to address. it's why the president said that there are things that can be done right now, and called upon his secretary of veterans affairs, eric shinseki, to try to move forward and reach out to the individuals who are still in line waiting for care. >> look, there are these two separate responses, one about accountability, which is going to be longer term, and that's frustrating a lot of people, but also the desire to fix this right now. the problems are here right now. it seems like he's focusing on that. thank you, peter alexander. the president's methodical approach we've been talking about is engendering a lot of frustration
